Two versions of Picasso found in my sketchbook. 1888, 1944
Here are the “basement” collection of prints I forgot about from this semester.
The fact that textile patterns are transcribed onto rigid copper plates is a comment on the confined expectations of consumer behavior. Something “beautiful” like these patterns may have once been become almost sad within their new home on a copper plate. The second pairing of images were made on linoblocks. The material I carved on, in itself, is synthetic and not very valuable. The I <3 NY symbol and the repetitive shirt folding instructions are familiar to suburbanites and again grossly repetitive. Paired next to the “pretty” and intricate fabric patterns, I hope that the entirety of the collection reflects a confined and rigid attitude towards suburban fashion culture about suburban fashion culture.
